However, our facilitator is unable to supervise the meeting on Nov. 24th, so that session is cancelled.

We’re meeting this coming Thursday! Bring a notebook and a pen and join us for some writing practice and maybe sharing an idea for NaNoWriMo!

Hi Outwriters,

Make sure to mark your calendars as we are meeting this coming Thursday 8-10pm at the 519 for another session of writing practice and sharing.
Don’t forget that NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is right around the corner (starts November 1st) so you might want to start thinking up a good story to devote the month of November to.
